Phillip LeBel

Fulbright Senior Fellow

Faculty of Business and Economics

Addis Ababa University

Spring 2009

This file contains documents pertaining to a Fulbright Senior Fellowship grant to teach and conduct research in Ethiopia during the spring of 2009. Listed below are profiles of the courses I taught, followed by links to a series of public lectures I delivered to various institutions in Ethiopia. Finally, there is a list of five commentaries produced at various points during our stay in Ethiopia. For anyone interested in learning first hand about a country such as Ethiopia I can not recommend more strongly a Fulbright grant to realize your expectations and the rewards that follow. A summary of my Fulbright experience can be found at:
